Ben's first camera as a child was a simple Kodak 35mm disposable, he was young and had no idea what he was doing, his photographs were blurry and ill-composed, but he tried none the less.
A few years down the line and he likes to think he has progressed, albeit still shooting kodak. In a digital age, film photography is more important than every for him it has a character and depth which cannot be duplicated with digital. The process requires thought, care and patience, and that's what he enjoys most about it. He loves its gritty, ominous textures over a dramatic sky, and without the distraction of colour you envision a scene with an entirely new set of eyes.
